Making presentations with Free/Open Source Software

Speaker: Scott Murphy

Scott will be giving a talk on non-commercial presentation software. The talk will cover some of the popular tools and some demos as well. The source for the talk will also be made available, so you can examine how to go about generating a presentation without having to dig too deep into the bowels of the tools being discussed. This is not going to be an exhaustive discussion, but an overview of a few tools that he has used.
